Retro Lingerie

Modcloth, my favorite snoop shopping trip, has been expanding their dainty underthings in a big (and I thought surprising) way recently.  More retro styled and vintage-inspired foundations and lingerie, fewer skimpy bralettes and teeny bikinis.  Interesting...

Elegant Underpinnings

Of course, Modcloth has always specialized in vintage.  I've just associated them more with a 70s/80s  influence, and now it seems the 30s/40s/50s/60s are the focus.  Which is just fine by me!

I'm loving all of these...

Bold Hollywood full coverage bra & panty in Sapphire

 Bold Hollywood full coverage bra & panty in gilded black

 Bold Hollywood full coverage bra & panty in beige

Oh-So-Lovely bralette and shorts

Dressing Parlour
Sweet Like the Songbird

Va Va Voluminous Petticoat

Now if only I had the clothes to match the pretty underthings...  What a closet!


  1. oh I have the cream ones from Elegant Underpinnings with the sock garters. I can't recommend them enough! They are constructed so well, hold up my stockings in a sorta sassy way and they do wonders for the hips/booty! LOVE.

  2. I have been dreaming about owning something from the Elegant Underpinnings line for the longest time! Modcloth's return policy on lingerie (you can't) and the customer reviews have held me back. Perhaps one of these days I'll feel brave and take the plunge. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I'm so impressed with the sizing! I love nothing more than a full slip. It's so hard to find one that fits on the thrift, and the one I have (vintage JC Penny!) I never want to take off. More slips will make me so happy! A yellow slip will put me over the MOON!

  4. Elegant underpinnings is Rago. Which is available from other places.
    I'd be interested to know if the Bold Hollywood line is available under a different name...


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
